Mortgage Banking

North Lake College is the only DCCCD college and one of the few community colleges in the nation to offer an associate degree program in Mortgage Banking. 

Ours was the first Mortgage Banking associate degree program created in the country and remains the oldest fully accredited program in the U.S. Created in 1991, the program was the result of requests from industry leaders to provide specialized education for entry- and higher-level positions in the mortgage-lending field.

  • Mortgage banking
  • Mortgage brokerage 
  • Loan originating, processing, servicing or collection
  • Real estate finance
  • Property management
  • Real estate sales 
  • Retail banking
  • Secondary marketing
